July 10, 1993

Hey, what can you say? It's Tina's year. On this documentary David Bowie refers to her as a „phoenix,“ which probably isn’t far from the truth. She’s risen from the worst and, at this point in her career, she just keeps rising (no more falls, please. Sequel not necessary). This is chock full of early Tina footage, with and without Ike, and contains the cream of her best tunes and performances. Tributes from Bowie, Jagger, Clapton, Cher and others, as well as an interview with Ike. Tina herself relives the times along, and through it all an indomitable spirit comes through.
